Energy UK, in collaboration with LCP Delta, delivers this training course that focuses on financing power stations, generating electricity and trading across markets. This training will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of the main power markets (Wholesale Market, Balancing Mechanism, Ancillary Services, Capacity Market and Contracts for Difference), a breakdown of power asset costs and revenue (Capex, Opex and O&M), network charging, and building the business case for a new asset.
